4th AQFF Asian Queer Film Festival

Filmmakers from countries including South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong and Cambodia are taking part in this year's AQFF, a biennial festival that sheds light on the range of LGBT experiences in Asia. Tanwarin Sukkhapisit's ladyboy-themed It Gets Better opens the festival, while One Night and Two Days, a trio of shorts by gay cinema pioneer Lee Song Hee-Il, closes the proceedings the following weekend. Films to look out in between include Kim Jho Kwang-soo's Two Weddings and a Funeral – a feelgood romcom in which the main characters happen to be gay – and Saratsawadee Wongsomphet's Yes or No, So I Love You, which holds the distinction of being Thailand's first film to feature lesbian protagonists (the 2012 sequel is also showing). All films screened with English subtitles.
